The Geometer

The golden rule.

The man with the golden reed described in Revelation 21:15 is the geometer assigned to settle the Jerusalem boundary dispute.
Behold, a man with a measuring line in his hand. (Zechariah 2:1) "NKJV"

Measuring line: standard

A man with a measuring line: the geometer

The measuring line in the hand of the geometer was described as a golden reed because the new Jerusalem (the Axis Mundi) is a golden city.

He: the geometer

Golden reed: the measuring line

The measuring line or golden reed is the standard.
The Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him.         (Isaiah 59:19) "KJV"

The new Jerusalem is about the golden rule which says,
Do for others what you want them to do for you: this is the meaning of the Law of Moses and of the teachings of the prophets.      (Matthew 7:12) "GNT"

The city: the new Jerusalem (the cosmos)

The dimension of the new Jerusalem is described as follows:
The city is laid out as a square; its length is as great as its breadth. (Revelation 21:16) "NKJV"

And the three dimensional structure of the new Jerusalem is described as follows:
Its length, breadth, and height are equal. (Revelation 21:16) "NKJV"


A geometer was appointed to measure the new Jerusalem and settle the Jerusalem boundary dispute because the holy city is geometric: Revelation 21:16 portrays the city as a square and a cube.

The prophet Zechariah had the following conversation with the geometer while he (the geometer) was on his way to settle the Jerusalem boundary dispute once and for all,
So I said, “Where are you going?” And he said to me, “To measure Jerusalem, to see what is its width and what is its length.”    (Zechariah 2:2) "NKJV"

The measurement obtained by the geometer was the measurement of only one stone: the jasper stone. The stones constituting the wall of the holy city are people of every tribe, race, nation and language. This means that the measurement obtained by the geometer is a human being: Jesus.

Jesus has been magnified, and the new Jerusalem is a network of people. The network is the constantly expanding space-time continuum. Therefore the geometer can't possibly arrive at an accurate measurement of a city whose boundaries are constantly changing.

Mandala

Mandala is a two dimensional representation of the axis mundi: the junction between the physical and the metaphysical. The physical is man or the earth, the metaphysical is God or heaven (sky), and Mandala is where God and man or heaven (sky) and earth are reconciled.

The universe is the sum of heaven and earth.

Universe = Heaven (Sky) + Earth

A mandala (emphasis on first syllable; Sanskrit मण्डल, maṇḍala – literally "circle") is a spiritual and ritual symbol in Hinduism and Buddhism, representing the universe(Wikipedia)
We learnt from the Taiji that the axis mundi represents balance or stability. Therefore the universe of the axis mundi is the orderly universe known as the cosmos, which means that Mandala is a two-dimensional representation of the cosmos.

"mandala" has become a generic term for any diagram, chart or geometric pattern that represents the cosmos metaphysically or symbolically; a microcosm of the universe. (Wikipedia)
Mandala is simply a square and …

Holy of Holies

The Holy of Holies or the Most Holy Place is the Axis Mundi in the form of a brilliant or glowing transparent glass cube described as the holy city, the great city, the holy Jerusalem, the new Jerusalem, and the bride (the wife of the Lamb).

“Come, I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb.”      (Revelation 21:9) "NIV"
A cube is made up of six square facets, eight vertices and twelve edges. The eight vertices constitute space, the twelve edges constitute time, and the six square facets (or faces) constitute space-time where the three hands of time are reconciled to three dimensional space.

8 Vertices = Space

12 Edges = Time

6 Sides = Space-time

Space (the 8 vertices) is a compass and time (the 12 edges) is a clock, such that the cube (the Holy of Holies) is a compass clock.

The compass is the geographical axis, the clock is the celestial axis, and the cube is the Axis Mundi (the center of the world) where the celestial axis and the geographical axis are connected or u…

The Covenant Box

The Covenant Box (also Ark of the Covenant or Ark of the Testimony) is the square enclosing the circle and the eight-pointed star of the Mandala crested on the floor of the cavern under the Pierced Stone (the Foundation Stone) inside the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

Recall that Jesus is the Ish-Man, made up of body and Spirit. The body is the Lamb and the Spirit is God. For instructional purpose, the Lamb is the Pierced Stone at the center of Dome of the Rock.
“People will look at him whom they pierced.” (John 19:37) "GNT"
 Then they will look on Me whom they pierced. (Zechariah 12:10) "NKJV"
The Lamb was pierced on the side as follows:
one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear (John 19:34) "NKJV"
The small hole on the southeastern corner of the Pierced Stone is the injury sustained by Lamb when they pierced him. The foundation stone is called the Pierced Stone because of the injury sustained by Jesus. In other words, Jesus is the rock at the center …
